Good unpopular nightlife/cultural destinations in Poland

Can anyone please let me know some off the beaten track destinations with good nightlife and cultural attractions in Poland.

Preferably university towns but not necessarily. I would rather not go to the Warsaws, Krakow's, Szczecin's, Wroclaw etc..

I would like to stay away from the big Polish tourist destinations if possible.

Any advice much appreciated.

Gliwice is a good option, that's where I live. It has one of the most famous universities in Poland, it is renowned for being a uni city (well, a polytechnic but who's looking at technical differences here?). Cultural attractions, well, it has the Radiostation Tower where WWII started. The market square is beautiful too. The nightlife is pretty decent. The studenty bars can be found around Pszczynska street but the hub of the action is on the market square. Any more info, please ask

Thanks Seanus, where is Gliwice? If I wanted to visit which airport could I fly into from elsewhere in Europe?

Where would u fly from? U can fly to Katowice or Krakow, they are the nearest two airports. Wrocław also may be possible.

Szczecin's, W

For student night life, then Szczecin is a very good bet. I had a very good time there but this is years ago and has probably changed a bit since I was last there. Many universities are located there and you should be able to mix in the fun.
